Ny färjeolycka (Pemba/Nungwi)

Katamaranen MV Kilimanjaro II (http://www.azammarine.com/catamarans/kilimanjoro-ii/) råkade på söndagskvällen 5 januari ut för hårt väder och ska enligt uppgift ha förlorat en handfull av sina passagerare till vågorna.

MV Kilimanjaro II left Pemba Island at 8 a.m. on Sunday, bound for Unguja Island in Zanzibar. It was due to arrive three hours later, but just after halfway of the journey strong waves struck the boat, officials said.

The ferry was carrying 396 adult passengers and 60 children aboard when about 20 people and part of the cargo fell in the sea, Zanzibar Maritime Authority (ZMA) Director Abdi Omar Maalim told reporters at the port.
